i think the rams lost. they were unprepared for what happened in front of them. there just isnt a lot of sure fire talent that is elite in this draft. shoulda stayed put and took claiborne or one of the dominant WR's for bradford to pitch to.

brockers could be a monumental bust.

First of all both of the players everyone is saying are sure fired picks have high grades this year.They stayed the extra year in college so they would look this good.They would not have been that have been that ranked this high last year Blackman and claiborne would have been the 3rd rated at there positions at best.
Second the rams are more than two players away from be a average team.The rams can not become a playoff team with one draft.
Plus they get 2 first round picks

Now they have three early picks in the second round to address other needs and there are still lots of players who are considered as first round talents (Martin, Fleener, Glenn, etc). I think they recover very well.

The biggest loser is the Seahawks. They can probably pick Bruce Irvin in the second round and they have just lost a Seahawks fan to the Steelers.
According to NFL.com, Rex Ryan called the Seahawks and told them (in true Ryan fashion!) that he would have selected Irvin with the 16th pick had the Seahawks not taken him.
